CONNECTING URBAN DANCE AND THEATRES
'Mind Ur Step' is an international project that consists of a team of bridge builders like theatres and urban dance experts from The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany.
We have set up a coaching program for 12 professional urban dancers who have been around for a while and are ready for the next step in their career. They will be coached and skilled by experts to evolve from performers to choreographers. We will work with them towards an urban dance theatre production, touring Europe in 2019.
Mind Ur Step is a partnership between ROOTS & ROUTES (The Netherlands), Stichting MAAS Theater en Dans (The Netherlands), Koninklijke Schouwburg Vlaanderen (Belgium), Racines Carrées (France) and Roots & Routes Cologne (Germany).
The selected dancers will work with international renown artistic directors Nabil Ouelhadj, Kader Attou and Lloyd Marengo towards an international urban production and theatre tour.
